I'm a busy as anyone (subcategory guy without kids). I listen to a lot of long podcasts. I also edit a long podcast. It can be done.
I encourage you to listen to some of our 45 minute episodes then http://5by5.tv/onthegrid/97 45-60 is much closer to our normal range
I said could, because we made a decision to stop at a certain point. So we didn't. I made cuts but I really don't think there was more to take out without being dishonest to the conversation. Out of curiosity, did you end up listening to the episode?
Our episodes usually are that length (45-60mins) but there was just no way to cover what we wanted in that time. Eli was generous enough to give us 2 hours of his time, but I honestly could have spent 4 hours discussing this. There are plenty of things we didn't get to touch on that the essa...
I proposed a standard for served up official logo artwork a while ago: http://relogo.org/ One of the better uses I found was a script that automated this from the relogo code: http://demo.jarnesjo.net/jquery-logo-downloadtip/
URL when you click submit: http://jessepollak.github.io/card/?number=1234+5567+8890+0000&name=John+smith&expiry=01+%2F+1111&cvc=1234 This must be for demo use only? That can't be secure
For design (less dribbble, more thoughtful articles): http://www.reddit.com/r/designthought http://www.reddit.com/r/onthegrid
As the guy who designed Raleway, I wouldn't recommend it for small copy. Looks good on headlines though.
Thanks for taking the time to check it out. Much appreciated. Hope you get a chance to listen to more.
Exploiting young people who are desperate for money and attention? It really fits their brand.
I'm glad it doesn't come off as an hour of whining, but I felt really good about it after editing it. Specifically some of the stuff Dan talked about.
Thanks a lot!
There you go, Red Pen looks like the more useful version of this. Annotating spots on an image is a good reason for a tool like this to exist.
I guess I just don't see why that's better posting on Twitter or using Dribbble with a Twitter account
I'm missing the value here. You drop in an image, it uploads it and gives you a link to share on Twitter? Is there any value beyond just posting the same image on Twitter?
More of an ad than an article
Thanks for listening. If you have any specific things you'd like to hear about, feel free to send ideas.
Andy is a smart and talented guy who's always got something worthwhile to say. I'm biased, but I agree. Check us out.
This is not much of an article, but If you're looking for a good alternative: http://www.fonts.com/font/canada-type/gibson
Hey, it's Andy Mangold!
These are new?
This article is really poorly considered. Using an in-house team doesn't cost $0. Employees get paid. Coca Cola, Nike, and Google have put A TON of money into promoting those logos. That's what makes those iconic. They aren't iconic or brilliant in a vacuum. I promise the high pri...
You can find the code on Github: https://github.com/jarnesjo/jquery-logo-downloadtip If you're not familiar with rel="logo": http://relogo.org
Not really news, notable or interesting.
Weird scaling. Most images wouldn't be as forgiving to scaling the width unproportionally.
The term 'flat' should be as necessary as the term 'atheist'. Only required in an irrational world...

Repost. Can the mods remove?
This came up on a recent episode of On the Grid: http://onthegrid.co/post/45389389853 I always think of it when discussing icons and abstraction. Abstraction to realism or customization is always a sliding scale of personal to universal. If you haven't read Understanding Comics, it's a ...
It is important to make sure that a button is understandable as something to be touched, yes, that serves a purpose, but the full treatment to mimic the buttons of a record player is not 'as little design as possible' I think the execution of the UI is very well done, but I don't buy...
I would argue that translating the work of Dieter Rams and to "take influence from the very original designer and dig deep into his/her motivations" would not result in mimicking physical buttons on a digital display. In his original work, you can see that those buttons were for a finge...
Show it in as many real world applications as possible. Try to build the world that they want to see it in. It will always involves quite a bit of photo research and photoshopping/rendering but it really does help to get your client to imagine this identity in the world they live in. I think i...
This is not news. This has been said many times before. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Crystal_Goblet
Are there plans for a downvote button?
There is a bit of an open source type design community: http://www.theleagueofmoveabletype.com/ It doesn't always result in the highest quality work, but I've been a part of it and seen some interesting things come out of it. Not too long ago, Google decided to pick up my single weight ...
I'm surprised this is considered news here. It is positive, but I thought it was already understood.
The problem with this article is looking at 'flat' design as a trend. Liking 'flat' design for sake of it being flat is just picking one style over another. The reason it's interesting to see it pick up steam is because it's doing away with anything unnecessary. If flat ...
It is difficult to see the hierarchy of comments and replies at the moment with the subtle indent. Perhaps a vertical line for every level of reply?
This would be great. At the moment, it seems like points on a comments doesn't matter.
Already mentioned above but http://99percentinvisible.org Amazing show
Thanks for the mention!
Check out our show, On the Grid: http://onthegrid.co
A long, raw conversation about the merits of Hessian.tv
The biggest supporter I have so far is FourSquare. I've gotten a ton of traffic to the site in the past couple of days, so I hopefully that translates into a few more supporters but who knows if anyone is implementing. It may just be more eyeballs on the homepage...
I had an unfair head start
A few fellow Pentagrammers found this in a locker beneath old gym clothes
Thanks Kelly I would like expand upon the discussion of armchair criticism and design critics a bit at some point. I imagine we'll start to see design critics that aren't designers by trade emerge more and more, especially as design becomes more a part of pop culture, but I wonder how de...
We're calling it the cursed episode. Two edits were lost due to technical issues, but it's finally online...

Look into pro OpenType typefaces. Most will feature Tabular Lining Numerals, which are fixed width numerals. OkayType has been a recent favorite foundry, they usually support this: http://okaytype.com/harriet/series http://okaytype.com/alright/sans If you've got a more specific style in m...

Bryan, Thank you for the amazing response. We always hope for thoughtful responses and damn have you delivered. I do see the flip side of the worry about being able to be certified, but I'm always going to be wary of the people pushing for one more artificial boundary. If there were a cert...
Luggage tag: let's pay extra for full color knockout printing of the date. Looks cool, but not a very thoughtful redesign.
I appreciate Armin's thoughts but after reading Vignelli's response on Business Week, I wonder if he's as relevant now as he has ever been. Type is more understandable he says? Look at the movement of the web. We have to simplify complicated graphics down to easily read typography. Wh...
A down vote button. It seems like the up vote button doesn't filter out bad content fast enough.
This is a discussion we had on our podcast, On the Grid. I would be interested to hear some opposing views from anyone who gets a chance to listen to the conversation.
Are we talking overall brand or just cool logos? If it's the entire branding effort, it seems like Simple and Square have done the best job I've seen in a while.
+1 for duplicate checking. That sounds like priority number 1.
Are badges applied by moderators after a post is created? Or will users be able to assign their own badges?
Thanks a lot. We're thrilled that we've started to hear back from like minded designers.
Thanks Kelly. I hope you enjoy this episode. And if you want to join our little community, check out onthegrid.reddit.com
